I am a writer and editor, am newly married (May 7, 2010), and live on the west side of Cincinnati, Ohio.
I work from my home office as a substantive book editor and copy editor.
I have three grown daughter, two grandchildren, two grown stepchildren, and one step-grand-daughter.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake bread, make homemade donuts. Am not fond of making cookies, but I am really good at it! For the most part, I am a great baker and with my Mom's and younger sister's help, am learning to broaden my talents in the cooking arena.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
Again - baking bread - any kind, including sweet bread, bagels, rolls, etc. I also made homemade noodles once, that were marvelous, but took way too much time and space in my kitchen. I had them hanging everywhere!
My cooking tragedies
Pumpkin roll. My sister is great at it, but mine was horrid - well, the presentation was, but it tasted fine - as a big pile of bread and cream cheese!
